Using airsoft to practice real weapons proficiency is as gay as a boy in a dress.
Research, get a weapon that fits what you want to use it for, and find a qualified instructor to assist you in your training.
It's not going to be cheap, or happen overnight. You need to build the memory muscle and develop good shooting habits.
Now, move out and draw fire!

Don't focus attention on guns though. In a survival situation bullets run out. Don't be dependent on them. Depend on your skills, not your tools.

Airsoft guns are really toys.... They can help you get the feel of a gun in your hand but not the effects.
We all know when someone gets shot in the movie is a lot different when some gets shot in real life...
Be concious, go to the shooting range and forget the toys unless you want to play....
Still even the shooting range doesn't simulate you shooting a person and blowing a body part off or killing them....
It's more then just the gun its the effects they cause.....
C'mon we all know that guns don't kill people, people kill people, but they sure help.
